SLB is very tight, high energy, totally professional band that I book whenever they want to play our room. They draw a full house of 25 to 65 year olds every time out……dancing all night long!!! Look up when you hear Neil Diamond tune to be sure it’s not Neil himself.

Throughout my many years as an event producer and artist manager, I have come across a plethora of bands. The Shawn Lightfoot Band exceeds all expectations as a premier party band! We book this crowd favourite often as he brings the ‘party’ to our large venue with every performance.

Development Officer - Kindale

I am so excited to write this testimonial for the absolutely outstanding Shawn Lightfoot Band. They have been performing at our events for several years …. most recently Summer Suds in Vernon, BC. The energy and enthusiasm that they bring to the event is sensational. They have a way of reading the crowd (however large) and performing for them. And …. just when you think they can’t get any better, they learn new songs and literally knock them out of the park. I would without question, not hesitate to recommend the Shawn Lightfoot Band for any event that you are wanting to plan.

Darcy Seghers

Manager - Salmon Arm Curling Club

We use the Shawn Lightfoot Band for a lot of our events and fundraisers. From Bonspiels to Brewswap they get everyone dancing. Always fresh, professional and always a full dance floor. Simply the best.
